October Student of the Month
The Effingham High School Student of the Month program began eight years ago to honor a group of students each month for each curricular area at Effingham High School. The faculty members in each department observe their students each month to make their selection. While grades are an important part of this selection, they are not the sole determination. Students are also evaluated on their sense of classroom citizenship, helpful nature to others, and whether they are giving their best effort, A or not.
